The Minerva Bistro is located on the ground floor of the building of the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research on Riedberg Campus, and it is open to the public.
The Minerva bistro offers a weekly seasonal menu of innovative, high-quality, healthy and attractively priced cuisine. You can find the bistro’s entrance in the foyer of the MPI building at Max-von-Laue-Str. 4 and on sunny days you can eat on the terrace and enjoy the garden.
Minerva is open from 8:00 to 17:00 Monday-Friday and also offers various breakfast varieties (including delicious avocado toast, eggs benedict) and lunch service from 11:30 - 15.00 hours (during the pandemic).
